George Gerdes

Actor/singer

Born - 23 February 1948, New York City, USA
Died - 1 January 2021

Hard-looking, apple-cheeked American actor and folk singer with thinning brown hair. After an isolated film debut in Come Back Baby (1968), he concentrated on a singing/songwriting career until combining it with character acting in the late 1980s: The Squeeze (1987), Call Me (1988), Jacknife (1989), Single White Female (1992), Boiling Point (1993), Iron Will (1994), Amistad (1997), Spark (1998), Stealth Fighter (1999), Graced (2002), Hidalgo (2004), TV Virus (2007), The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo (2011) and Saving Lincoln (2013). Bearing a passing resemblance to former US president Dwight D Eisenhower, Gerdes finally got to play him in his last movie, The 11th Green (2020). He died from a brain aneurysm.
